Namaz - Objections and Counterobjections

In regards to this question.

"5. While the above objections do come to mind and I fail to find a satisfactory answer, I disagree on one point totally: Reading words of God back to Him! Are we reading words of God back to Him or reading His words for ourselves to be reminded of what He has ordained? As I said, it depends on how you look at a picture, especially an abstract one."

Have you been to a mosque and witnessed the elders reading the Qu'ran?

I'd say its more like chanting with them in a seated position moving their upper bodies back and forth.

There's a clear difference between that of reading a book to gain knowledge and simply reciting any given text.

The prayers we see today is nothing but a ritual chanting back any given surah to Allah, the most knowledgable. There is no reason for this, Allah, most wise, knows the book.

Best regards
